and there is no power south of 34th street. the financial district the stock exchange did reopen today. superstorm sandy has crippled that system. there is catastrophic damage to underground tracks and equipment. the mta says it is too early to tell whether full service will return and be fixed. millions of commuters use the system every day. commuters relied on buses, cars and cabs if you were lucky enough to find them. there was gridlock as bad as we have ever seen. look at a live shot of columbus circle south of central park on the west side. central park still remained closed. it has been like this all day. one of the reasons is that crane is still dangling over 57th street and that is creating the massive traffic jam around the circle. jason joins me from the queensboro bridge. i talked to you earlier today and most people have given up trying to get a vehicle they were walking. >> oh, yeah, it has been a frustrating day for thousands of commuters making their way across the bridge. you can look through the traffic people still making their way at this hour even at 8:00. it is the only way for a lo

. we begin tonight with breaking news. late new word on exactly where hurricane sandy is heading and just how powerful it might be if and when it hits the east coast. now, the storm has already claimed nearly two dozen lives in the caribbean as it heads north. could morph into something else entirely, part tropical weather system, part winter nor'easter, possibly lingering for days over the eastern seaboard. in other words, a super storm. that's what new york governor andrew cuomo is very worried about. he declared a statewide emergency this afternoon. emergency orders also in effect in pennsylvania, virginia, maryland and the district of columbia. a baltimore power company declaring 2,000 out of state linesmen, some from as far away as mexico. i'm always worried about overhyping a storm, especially this far in advance. let's just try to get the facts tonight from chad myers, who has late new information in the cnn weather center. what's the latest on this storm, because honestly, i'm not sure -- is this for real? because we hear so much hype about storms sometimes. >> you know,
dealing with this hurricane or what was a hurricane but dealing with sandy right now and these winds that about an hour ago have been up to about 80 miles an hour here. chad, back to you. >> i have seen all those ponies. they are fuzzy ponies. they got there because of a shipwreck offshore. the horses were on the boat or on the ship. the horses got to land and they have been there ever since. couple hundred years now. they take them off every once in awhile and if they thought that was going to be a significant thing, they would have swam them across on to the shore. i don't know what they did with them but these little guys, they lay down in the sea oats and the grass and they will be just fine. don't worry about that. this whole area here is still under the influence of a major low pressure center. i know you've heard that this is no longer a hurricane. it's no longer a hurricane because it doesn't have an eye and it's not over warm water. it has transitioned to a cold storm. that's why it's snowing in west virginia and virginia itself. the storm system, though, still has an awful
. >>> welcome back to our continuing coverage of this storm, sandy. let's check in again with ali velshi in atlantic city, where we've seen all day long ali getting pelted by the wind and rain. ali, it seems pretty much not that much change for you over the last two hours or so. >> we've got gusts. you can see them in the pack of the shot every few seconds, gusts every few seconds. the sustained winds don't seem terribly strong. i'm now sort of anchored to something, holding on in case a gust comes through. it's seawater. yeah, it seems to be around the same place it was when i talked to you about 1 minutes ago. it doesn't seem to be rising. but we definitely did get the back end of the storm in the last hour. prior to that, we had a couple of hours where it was calmer. we were at the center of the storm as jason was getting pelted, as you guys were getting pelted and ashleigh banfield and aaron. we're probably seeing, i guess, the back end and we're probably halfway through that right now. there are these remarkable gusts. i saw a transformer go a little while ago. you can see from the
